2,5. I actually dug the 3rd story and the 1st one was ok, the middle one with the cat was amazingly bad. But overall there is something quite engaging in the atmosphere. Maybe it's just dat 90s nostalgia.
his one has three stories - first is about a mummy brought to life that is mostly humorous, second one is about a "Cat from Hell" based upon a Stephen King short story that has a pretty disturbing grotesque and memorable ending with a William Hickey in top form and the last one is a pretty good Asian-style atmosphere piece. A hit-and-miss movie that should be intriguing for fans of short stories fiction.
I could happily watch David Johansen daily if he were in more films but not even having a satanic black cat crawl out of his mouth could save this early MTV foray into horror. Tales From The Darkside casts Debbie Harry, Christian Slater, Julianne Moore & Steve Buscemi in the hammiest roles since Scream & Scream again. Incredibly dated (but full of nostalgia if like me you grew up in the 90s), with awful stories. D.
